I first heard this tune on Dylans' Self Portrait double

LP that came out in 1970. There are two different takes of it.

"Searching for Little Sadie" and "Little Sadie".

I found this little sample you can check out.

Quite honestly I always found his take on it hilarious.

The writing credits on the album say Bob Dylan but even then

not having heard the song before I think I may have been a

little dubious.Anyway here's a bit of info.

Glad someone mentioned the Dylan ones .
The first is comic, the second a fast go though .
Garcia's versions fit more with the more Doc Watsonish versions .

Has anyone really looked at Doc's influence on Garcia? Surely my SECOND favorite Grisman collaboration is Doc and Dawg. You can really hear on those records how both Doc and Jerry liked to fill a distinct role in traditional american music. "Appalachian Gothic" is a wonderful term for it.

I got to see "Doc and Dawg" live ! One of the best live events I have ever been at .
Doc Watson was a conduit back to the pre-war musical world for a lot of our guys . He, and his influence would be a good LIA sort of post !

jealousy setting in...

now the longing...

the despair...

Aw heck they're both still alive right? maybe it'll happen again.

Watson has a real fine voice and can pick like nobody's business. And any man of his age from a town called "Deep Gap" must know some things that the world of apple and digits and whosiewhatnot has forgotten. Seems to me that he shares them quite well.
